Thank you Iwata, for everything. You will be missed, not just by me but by the gaming industry as a whole. Your legacy will forever be remembered, and I hope the values you preached while at Nintendo continue to guide the company forevermore.
Pokemon is one of the big game series that for one reason or another my family has been late to play. Happily then, the latest iteration, Pokemon X/Y on the 3DS, has offered us a great opportunity to get involved and catch up with the fun.
